LED Lighting Evaluation Environment and Communication Evaluation Environment

Outline

The hardware listed below is available for LED lighting evaluation, enabling customers to create a development environment that matches their products. The LED lighting communication master board can be used by customers to evaluate the communication functions of their LED lighting fixtures and supports development of master units (such as switches). Visit the Renesas website for details of each board.

Software Development Environment (Applilet EZ for HCD)
Outline

This tool can be used to create LED lighting software and to write programs to hardware. Simply specify dimmer operations or communication modes in the GUI to generate digital power control (PFC, DC/DC) or DALI communication software. The software created in this way can then be written automatically to the microcontroller's flash memory via a USB cable so that you can check its operation on the evaluation board.

Features
  • Dramatically reduces the time required to develop LED control and DALI communication software.
  • Allows evaluation of LED lighting or illumination systems without requiring an extensive knowledge of microcontrollers.
  • The generated programs can be edited in an integrated development environment (IDE).
  • Applilet EZ for HCD is available for download free of charge. => Download
